, i wanted to bring in our white house correspondent, dan lothian. dan, is it all about the timing? is it now or never? is it capitalizing on the emotion of this country or is there something else afoot? >> no i do think it is now or never. the white house sees a sense of urgency here in pushing something forward. when you look back over the past several years, when you had these massive shootings, whether it's in connecticut, whether it's in colorado or elsewhere, there's talk in washington about coming up with guidelines to prevent something like that from happening again. then usually it gets lost in the noise of washington there are other pressing issues that come up. in fact we probably would have been talking about fiscal issues had that shooting not happened. they see this as an opportunity to seize the moment. they believe the president is putting forward a comprehensive plan, but it's controversial. a lot of pushback, not only from gun rights groups but some lawmakers up on capitol hill. >>> if you wouldn't mind we minding viewers. there was a lot of talk about the 19 pote
-gun tirade that quickly went viral, and that's not all he's got to say. here is abc's dan harris. >> reporter: are you for hitler or against hitler? whatever they say is the opposite. they never tell the truth. >> reporter: tonight as millions of americans worry about the government taking away their guns, this man, alex jones, is pushing a lot of buttons. >> and i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? >> reporter: when alex jones went on cnn's piers morgan to discuss gun control in the wake of the sandy hook massacre -- >> you're a hatchet man of the new world order. >> reporter: he created a sensation. this video went massively viral. >> you think you're a tough guy? have me back with a boxing ring in here. >> reporter: who is alex jones? >> we've got abc nightly news/"nightline" here. >> reporter: jones agreed to let us into his world for a day. >> we're just soldiers looking to cross each other on the picket line here. america has been captured. america has been robbed. we are now being looted like a t
that the president could take through executive action to by pass powerful opposition in congress. and dan lothian joins us live at the white house. so, dan, if you could just layout the difference between what the president can do using executive action versus using administrative action. >> and the president and vice president have talked about things they can do legislatively. but if they can't do it that way, they can move things a lot qui quick are by ter by the preside acting on his own. a ban on high capacity clips. universal back grounground chec. tightening up checks on background checks. also discussing issues around mental health. those are some of the things that are part of the package that the president is currently looking at. but again, the president also has talked about using executive orders to move things along very quickly. and that is sort of shaping up to be somewhat of a more murky issue. one thing we expect is that the president wants to enforce existing laws. so laws that are already on the books, use executive orders to enforce them. another thing that the president poin
to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be surrounded by children who wrote letters to him begging for gun control. >> reporter: that's right. you know, we see the white house do this in the past, usually it's around a fiscal fight where the president's putting pressure on congress he'll be surrounded by families from across the country. well, in fact, the president, as you pointed out, will be surrounded by these young kids who wrote letters to the president in the wake of the connecticut shootings. in addition to that, though, a white house official confirming that the president will also be joined with some newtown families, families impacted by the newtown shootings at this event here today. so, clearly this is an effort by the white house to put pressure on lawmakers. as we've been pointing out, there are two tracks here that will take place, things that congress can d
and ceo of cheg, dan rosenweig is here. >> we've got breaking news from the federal government. senior economics reporter steve liesman has the story. >> the fed is supposed to release this morning the transcript from 2007. those are the ones where they tell you who said what during meetings. an unusual amount of attention to these, because this is the first response of the federal reserve to the crisis which you remember began in the summer of 2007. what are we going to be looking for? what folks were saying in three emergency meetings. three rate cuts totaling 1%. and of course, there was a big debate, inflation versus response to the financial crisis on august #th. putting out a statement saying the main concern was inflation, three days later the federal reserve said it would provide reserves as necessary to combat the financial crisis. here's why this is going to be historically important. the first declines there in 2007, then what we'll do is overlay inflation on this. you can see what the fed was dealing with at the time. you had rising inflation at the time. at the same time y

necessary to protect americans in a harrowing hostage crisis unfolding in algeria. dan rivers is in london to bring us the very latest this morning. dan, good morning to you. algeria is defending a military operation that now has left at least one american and 11 others dead. what can you tell us about that? >> absolutely. this situation is not over yet. i think that is the headline. they're saying they're still pursuing terrorists and some hostages within this sprawling gas plant in the far south of algeria. as you say, the state department has confirmed one death. it's been widely reported he is from texas. the state department not going into further details about how many americans may still be missing. we're waiting for an update from london from the british foreign secretary william hague, chairing an emergency meeting about this. algerian state television is reporting that terrorists were planning to kill all of the hostages and to blow up this plant. so, it could have been a lot worse, had they managed to get through that. in the end algerians went in, freed some 650 people. there a
's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim here is to cut down on the ability of a gunman to go in and release up to 30 rounds in a short period of time. in addition, the president will be pushing for universal background checks so that everyone who buys aunder questi goes a criminal or mental health check. in addition the president wants to request funds be available for mental health illnesst to make sure there's money there for those things to be treated and to provide schools with the support they need for enhanced safety. the president is also

. >> dan lothian is on the south lawn of the white house. dan, the president is now basically two hours into his second term. i was going to ask, what happens now? obviously it's all moving toward the big day tomorrow. what's going on? >> that's right. well you know this is a little down time for the president after a very busy day next up for the president and the vice president tonight, both of them will be attending a candlelight service at the national building museum here in washington. caps off again a very busy day that started. the president and vice president laying a wreath at arlington national cemetery and the president attending an african-american in the district and the swearing in ceremony that you pointed out a few seconds ago where the president surrounded by a few close family members and friends taking the oath. the interesting moment i think came at the very end, where the first daughter sasha said to the president. that he didn't mess up. the president acknowledging some relief saying that quote, i did it. this of course is in reference to four years ago when there

matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> cnn's dan rivers is in london. dan, there are so many different stories going around that the compound was attacked by the algerian military, that some of the hostages escaped, including one american. what are you hearing? >> well, i'm afraid it is a very confusing picture. the latest line we have from the british foreign office here in london confirming that the algerians have told them that there is an ongoing operation at this gas field suggesting that perhaps some sort of effort to go in. we know from the ministry of information in algeria they surrounded the terrorists with the hostages at the gas field, the troops were there. this sounds like they have gone in. there were widespread reports that helicopters were being used to attack the terrorist positions. now, the algerian foreign minister is clear on that saying the use of helicopters is wrong, it's a fantasy was their quote on that. in terms of the number of people that are being held hostage, we don't really have a clear idea, i'm afraid. the initial reports

it a terrorist attack as well. for more, let's go to dan rivers in london. what are the latest reports there on the hostage situation? >> effectively, according to the minister of information in algeria, this is a standoff. the algerian security forces surrounded this gas plant in the far east of algeria. the islamists are holed up inside, holding a number of western hostages. we don't know the exact numbers. there's been a press conference this morning from the norwegian stat oil company. it is saying that it had 17 employees there, 5 escaped. and therefore 12 remain unaccounted for. not clear if all are being held hostage or if some escaped into the desert. it's a confused situation. the state department confirmed there are americans among those being held. we understand as well possibly british, japanese, french as well as those norwegians. a number of countries being embroiled in this hostage crisis which looks like it may have been precipitated by algeria's decision to allow french planes to fly of the country as part of its ongoing military campaign in mali to the south. >> i kno

.5%. dan springer in seattle for latest developments in this saga. >> the stock was down from the beginning of the day but that's really stabilized and has been a measured response nationwide among investors and among the airlines. in fact, there are several 787th in the air right now. not all of them have grounded their flights, but the latest in western japan. a warning light came on and then there was smoke in the cockpit. passengers could smell it in the cabin, prompting an emergency landing which went smoothly. there were no injuries but it appears to be yet another electrical problem, perhaps lithium-ion battery that sits just below and behind the cockpit. it was the first airline to buy the 787 and fly them. afterward the chairman apologized to customers and grounded all 17 of their dreamliners for further inspections. japan airlines followed with their seven planes. united airlines have been a safety check on all six of their dreamliners and they are all in service at this hour. several in the air right now. following a battery fire on a 787 parked at boston logan airport last week.
trouble with the jumbo jet. dan springer has the latest. >> january has been a rough month for boeing, especially when you consider how high they were flying in december. they overtook air bus as the world's number one plane maker for the first time in a decade. sales were soaring. now all we talk about is the dreamliner turned into a nightmare. the latest problem was in western japan, flight operated made an emergency landing after warning lights went on and electrical smoke was smellesmelled in the cockpit. it was a problem with the battery behind and below the pilot near the front of the plane. nobody was hurt but afterwards they apologized to the customers and grounded all 17 of the dreamliner. >> pan airlines followed suit with the seven planes. the national transportation safety board sent an investigator to japan. the ntsb you remember has its own investigation of a battery fire that happened on the ground in boston last week. that battery was in the back of the plane. used to provide power when the 787 is not flying. friday, the faa announced it was conducting comprehensive re
'malley. he's going to roll out sweeping gun control proposals of the connecticut governor dan malloy. how is this going to play into the 2016 race, do you think, chip? >> it will play into it. because right now the governors can actually do something with this campaign legislation. as they get in front of the senate and the most interesting one right now is secretary of state hillary clinton who doesn't have to make a comment, she can kind of speak through president clinton, and she can see how the story develops before she weighs in. >> 2016 is still a long way off. do you see what's happening now as kind of a sea change, that candidates won't be able to avoid the conversation and may in fact be out in front of the conversation to get out in front of it. >> i think the republicans will make it an issue because republican voters care deeply about their second amendment rites. i think the democrats will make it an issue because now there's a growing awareness that gun violence is something we have to take action about. i see both sides taking an interest in it. it's going to grow as an iss

of entrapment. dan springer is live at the courthouse in portland with more on all of this. hi, dan. >> reporter: yeah, hi, jenna. since 9/11 the f.b.i. has conducted well over one hundred of these terrorism-related sting operations. in almost ever case the defense claims entrapment. that defense has not worked a single time yet. hraoelg experts say because the bar is so high. in this case the evidence against mohammed mohammed appears very strong. his father contacted the tprao*eub worried mohammed was becoming rad dhaka hraoeuzed. he had written about jihad and becoming a mart you are. but the defense argues he was young, impressionable and during the elaborate f.b.i. sting operation groomed to be a would be killer. it's a risky defense. >> they need to so something else entirely, andt their client was not the least bit predisposed to want to do that at all, and proving that is actually very difficult under these kind of circumstances. >> reporter: the defense admits mohammed hit numbers on a cellphone thinking it would detonate a massive bomb in a van right in the middle of a holiday tree lig
